'Says Future of State Depends on
Sanctity of Marriage.
Disclaiming ary attempt to denounce any par
ticular pvso-j. Dr. sforsui Dix. at Trinity Church,
ye-tsrfay mornlngr. as a prelude to his discourse,
delivered himself "of a scathing arraignment of
thoee who would break down the Christian home,
with its marriage tics. lie said. In part:
The sermon I am about to preach was prepared

which has been bo much talked about for the last

Of course, the sermon baa no reference to the book

SVe are constantly hearing these days from the
sxtr«m< radicals who are In every conceivable
Kay pushing their schemes of social revolution.
And it U hard to say what is the worst "i the
Changes they would ... Lite in our social relations,
bui jrohably the wors: form of their radicalism i.s
tj.a.: about marriage. They would abolish marriage,
with all Its ties, break up the hom«r. or provlaa a
term r.r home not worthy of that name; they would
iiave all marriage eea»a. and th-j children, if there
ho any children from the strange forms ■■' union
which they propose tha children, I say. shall oe
long. not to the animals which produce them, hut
to tho state, which must have c:*izens if it is to con
tinue, to be raised and used for its own purposes.
This is not the only sciMme of this book, and
which Is given a wide circulation, but it is the
worst of a series of social views promulgated by a
set of people who are anarchists not interfered
with by the police.
If there is one place which should be and is
sacred it Is, above all, the home, the Christian
horn.*-, where the parents are bound together by a
■acred obligation, where they have taken upon
themselves vows made tacred by the office of tho
Church, and where a tie has been 1 irmed which
should never be broken but by death. There the
child Is surrounded by that love and . are which
shall bring- it forth .- good and useful man or
woman. The love of children is Instinctive With
fill humanity, and It is a monstrous thought that
human beings should df-slre not to bring children
into the world- should seek to evado the bearing of
children lest they I Ting trouble upon the parents.
"Why sin against the children is deadly: "whoever
■hail offend one of these little ones, it were better
that a millstone ehall be hanged about his neck, and
he be cast into tho dopihs of the sea." And it is the
duty of us as churchmen to nurture and foster
the children. The Church in Its organization is
very careful in educating the children, not to voca
tions which lead to worldly success, but in the
way of the lite to come There aro Instructions
In the prayer book regarding the children, which
ere impressed upon ail of us when we come into
the Church. I presume all of you have bad oaro
ful instruction on this subject. And the children
are brought to the church to have a name given
to them. The child has a name on tho church
Look. You know the name has been an object of
much solicitude In all ages. Abraham, when ha
prevailed with God had his name changed to
Abram. Jacob was renamed Israel by the angel
with whom lie -■ Lied. And than was that mighty
disciple of our Master. Saul. who. when the light
<<f God shone upon him, became Paul. It is im
portant that wo should have a name all through
life to hold to. t\:,j first sound on the ear in in
iancy, and the last thing to which we cling In
death, what does the nnme mean and what rela
tion does it bear to life?
First, the name cannot be changed without proc
ess of law; it i? that by which we are known In the
eyes of the law and we cannot be separated from
It The name stands for the individuality, for the
character and the standing of a man In his rela
tions to otbera; a man la known by that sUn that
name. Now, I am not speaking abstractions for a
wide ranco of people, but I am speaking to a cer
tain number of men and women who are here be
fore me With well •■ ned ideas of home. And it is
well that we ask ourselves the questions: What nave
1 done with the name which was given me and
written on the book? What account have 1 to give
of my steward hip? What shall be the recollec
tions whi<-h centre about that name •, ;.>, h I bear?
That Christian name which is given us at the
christening is always linked in the ceremony with
the njiue of tne Father und of the Son und of the
Jioly Spirit, and we are in duty bound to remem
ber that association. The bum y of a name is the
story of a contract with God entered Into when the
xiame is bestowed, ami of how that contract has
been kept— or not kept Your Christian name is
your nam", that by which you re known in this
church, and -it is not only on the book of this
church, but it is written on tha bo->k of life. What
refurd et:md3 apriicst your name on that book to
this hour?
What thoul.l be ti;« home in which this name is
first ppokeu? Above all things it ought to be a
training school where ererything eiiai! be taught
and done that will bring that child to a noble
manhood <,r womanhood. There ou^-ht to I*> train
ing m the home, not with reference to police regu
lations, but in the genial influences of all that is
pood and noble and that will tend to the higher
life. It should be the school «,f the sanctuary ' "the
echool of righteousness. The memory should
loudly dwell in ;l ft^r years on that hi me, bo that
one Fhnuld look ba«-k and say. whatever Is good In
me. whatever I have accomplished for the better
ment of mankind, came to me as a little child in
that garden of love.
Tho ihin^H that bring ruin and destroy our social
f;jbiic are not the vaporings of the radical sodal
« wOIYw OI Y' f th " anarchtet. but It is ever in tho home
luell that we find thf> breaking away, nd those
very heads of th.j home who should be its pro
tectors are oftf-n the causes for Its destruction:
And thTi-p is that vast and growing scandal the
national disgrace and debauch, our divorce laws
through which it is easy to break down the homo
and marriage ti<-s. Lot ni<^ give you some statis
tics. In twenty yr-arf in Europe, with a population
<■! 880,000.000 people, th<-re have been granted 214,000
divorces. In that sajne twenty y«-ar.s in America
with 80.000.000 people, there have ho, n ranted more
than 800.000 divorces. This is ai<pa!llnsr. What is to
in-.-orne of the home and with the Idren who are
cast adrift from lh>j home by a judicial decree?
We must protect the home from the influences
which tend to l,r<;ak it down.
.What are the Influences which make- parents dis-
Uke to have children? Very often tho parents are
away from the homo all day on business and'chil
aren would interfere with worldly success Then
there an, those who arc bent on pleasure, who
have no time to devote to the child, but leave it to
hired care, and only seem to ore that it bo kept
out of th« way. In such r. Nome there is no ■' rh
thin? as a home religion; there- Is no rm of prayer
paid trier*} !s no blessing pronounced over the
meals, or any ivgard for the ordinances worship
i;o instruction m the ways of life. These people
are no better than gadflies, the poison of unbelief.

Dr. Hi* 1 *" 1 C. Peters, of the Baptist Church of
the Epiphany, said last night before his sermon
that he wished to deny statements attributed to
him, in which be was made to say "that he agreed
with the views set forth by Mrs. Herbert Parsons.
He added that he believed In uniform and liberal
divorce laws and in the addition of habitual drunk
enness to the grounds for divorce.
Says Remedy Is Tb Be Found in
B ttter Home Life.
The Rev. Dr. J. F. Carson spoke yesterday morn-
Ing in the Cental Presbyterian Church, Brooklyn,
on "The Family Life." He traced the place and
power of the home in the development of civilisa
tion, and said that any tendency or enterprise in
modern life which threatens the integrity of the
horn.- Is a national peril. Among the things un
friendly to the home or the family idea. Dr. Car
son placed, fifst, a loose regard for the marriage
bond He said. In part:
Divorce has become an epidemic and is specially
malignant in the United States. It is an ominous
f.n't that divof < is more than thirty thins as fre
quenl In the United States as in Great Britain.
T • number of divorces annually granted in the
United States Is Increasing at a rate unequalled
in any other civilised country.
It is suggestive that these divorces are largely
among the prosperous people of the community.
Divorce is a disease, like nervous prostration; it
afflicts the prosperous more than it does the poor.
'!' te poorer people find the centre of tl;.-ir no in
tl • i "m<\ Many ■■!" t!>< richer people find it outside
me. The cause of these divorces cannot be
traced to hard lif<-. but to a soft creed. The cure
of this evil is a bom.- life in which each member
!< Interested in every other number, and all are
' • nt "ii making the home the centre of a happy,
contented life.
Another tendency of modern life that threatens
the home is a preference for hotel or apartment
note] lif<-. I am not discussing conditions which
may justify or condemn any of these tendencies,
but only naming tendencies whir h may work
against the home Idea, and not the least among
these Is a preference for the convenience, freedom
and cbangefulness of the hotel lif---. Whatever
advantage of economy or convenience there may
it this congregated and shifting life, it
certainly t-nus y> discourage that sentiment and
habit of life which foster the home idea.
1 plead for a sentiment In the home that will
compel reverence for the Sabbath Day and that
will magnify the Church and direct the interests
and aspirations of our young m«-n toward the
Church and its ministry. The great need of every
church to-day is equipped men to man its pulpits,
our educated young m--n are crowding the other
professions. I am persuaded that if more emphasis
whs put on religion find on the church in our
homes there would be more young men studying
ror the ministry. 1 know that m. n are divinely
called Into the ministry, but I rim sure that if there
were more Hannahs among the mothers of our
homes, more mothers who dedicate their hoys to
the L..rd from their birth, there would be more
tvimuels who would hear the voice of God calling
them Into His holy service.
President Sehurman Wants Rich
Man to Make Test of It.
Dr. Jacob Gould Bchurman, president of Cornell
University, spoke last night In Cooper Union, un
der the auspices of the People's Institute. His sub
ject was "The System of Individualism." The aim
Of bis discourse was to show that government and
society prospered better under the present system
Of individual effort than they could under a system
of state socialism. A suggestion that some rich
man should devote a few surplus millions to make
a berious test of socialism was loudly applauded
Among other things he said. In part:
We are living In an age of criticism and at a
tme of considerable discontent Individualism is
the key to progress, even in the animal Mi", ad

Blames Wealthy Class for Present Unsettled
Taking as his text the third verse of the
seventh chapter of Micah, "Their hands are
upon that which is evil to do it diligently; the
prince asketh ur.d the judge is ready for a re
ward; and the great man. he uttereth the mis
■ his soul; thus they work together," the
Rev. J»r. a. Edwin Keif win preached a sermon
in the West End Presbyterian Church on "Sun
day Theatres and the Reign of Anarchy."
Dr. Kelgwin said that nothing could be more
deplorable than "the present reign of anarchy"
in America. Then he asked, "Who is to blame
I 1 this un-American state of affairs?" The
usual answer, he said, was "the foreigner." But
this was not correct The upper classes were
to 1 lame.
Continuing, Dr. Keigwin declared that the
observance of the Sabbath Day was not what
It should be; that theatres should be closed on
and the laws governing the keeping of
the Sabbath enforced. He emphasized the point
that anarchy began at the top, and that reform
must also start there. Dr. Keigwin said In part:
The last twenty years has witnessed an alarm-
Ing growth of anarchy in this country., it has
found Its way Into every department of Ufe.
Borne sociologists are blaming organized labor
for this growth of lawlessness. This Is not true.
and national decay begin at the t..;..
Suffice ii for me to t--ay that the present reign
of, anarchy began among men at the ;•>!> who
have taught the man at the bottom not only to
the law, but how to manipulate it to his
own gain
The latest expression <>f anarchy is the Sunday
theatre jn 1!m«> there was only one such the
atre in New Vi.ik. To-day there are over fifty.
The law against Sunday theatres was made
more drastic a. year i.X" it Is nothing Kiss than
a case ,if the most high handed anarchy, in
which police officers are bought, judges corrupt
ed and ail ill the name <ij the "dear people and
theii rights."
Hut it Is not the public who are doing
this. It is the wealthy people. We have enough
laws mi our statute books to make New York
a-s white as snow If t! ey were obeyed. The
whole teaching of "iir text Is that anarchy be
gins at the top. The 1 orollary of that proposi
tion is that reform must also begin at the top.

but not in the reckless abuse in press and on plat
form intended to create an artificial revolution. The
type of frfe speech that distorted facts, misrepre
sented truth and attempted to influence the minds,
of the people to a point of rebellion, was nothing
short of treason, and the public prosecutor should
be empowered to proceed against such demagogues
for libel against the state.
The second evil to be remedied was to drive out
the person who flaunted his wealth in the face of
the poor, exciting envy and resentment. The politi
